HS2 Innovation Accelerator company pioneers technology to cut carbon and concrete waste: Cloud Cycle sensor technology

Cloud Cycle, a small tech start-up, is working inside HS2 Ltd’s Innovation Accelerator programme to harness the power of the Internet of Things to digitise and streamline how concrete is deployed during construction of Britain’s new high speed rail network.

The £835,000 grant jointly funded by HS2 Ltd and Innovate UK enables Cloud Cycle to accelerate introduction of its technology across the HS2 construction programme. The move is expected to reduce the amount of concrete used on the Phase One route between London and the West Midlands by 420,000 tonnes, cutting carbon dioxide production by 50,000 tonnes.
